As family members begin to age, they gradually need more assistance to get through their day-to-day lives. From dusting and vacuuming to doing laundry and preparing meals, tasks that involve a lot of standing and moving around become difficult. This means that able-bodied family members, like children, often find themselves spending 10, 20, or even more hours providing essential care.
At Assisting Hands, we offer in-home elderly care services to help your elderly relatives. Our caregivers are trained, bonded, and insured to provide a variety of senior care services, and will help give you and your loved one greater peace of mind. We currently assist families in need in the greater Niles, IL, area.
Benefits of In-Home Care
Perhaps the most important aspect of our elderly care services is the fact that your loved one will receive them in the comfort of their own home. This maintains a certain level of independence and familiarity that can make a world of difference to aging adults (this is particularly helpful for those struggling with memory loss). It also eliminates the need to move their belongings to an assisted living community.
Services We Provide
At Assisting Hands, we begin our services by sitting down with you and your family members to determine what kind of care is needed. Our care plans are fully customizable and can even be altered after we begin our services if additional needs arise. Once required tasks are established, we will send one of our professionals to your loved one’s home to assess its safety.
Our assisted living specialists are trained in a number of senior care services. Among the most utilized services we provide include:
- Alzheimer’s and dementia care
- In-home senior care (to help address day-to-day tasks)
- Non-medical health care
- Fall prevention
- 24-hour care and live-in care
- Respite care
- Personal emergency response systems
- Other forms of personal assistance
As we mentioned above, our personnel are trained, bonded, and insured to provide a wealth of caregiving services. On top of this, our caregivers are diverse. We can assign a male or female caregiver based on your preferences and many of them are even bilingual. We also allow you to switch caregivers if you prefer.
At the end of the day, we do everything in our power to ensure your family member receives the care and assistance they need from our qualified caregivers. We are happy to sit down with you and discuss the needs of your loved one. We also accept long term care insurance to help cover the cost of care.
